Save the Environment. Kill People. What?
I was reading an article on CNN this morning about Russia’s new “dad of all bombs.” Apparently, its a really, really big non-nuclear bomb. To quote CNN:
“The tests have shown that the new air-delivered ordnance is comparable to a nuclear weapon in its efficiency and capability,” said Col.-Gen. Alexander Rukshin, a deputy chief of the Russian military’s General Staff, said in televised remarks.”
Then article says this,
“Unlike a nuclear weapon, the bomb doesn’t hurt the environment, he added.”
What?! Is creating a huge crater in the ground and killing massive amounts of wildlife, trees and whatever else was underneath it not hurting the environment?
Also, doesn’t something seem a little off with this ethic? It’s okay to kill people as long as its okay for the environment.
I have an idea. Why don’t we take are of the environment and not kill people.
In fact, why don’t we take are of the environment BY not killing people.
Just a thought….
